(CBS) — Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. has received another high-profile visitor while he undergoes treatment for Bipolar II.
The past weekend, U.S. Rep. Congressman Dennis Kucinich, a fellow Democrat, dropped in on Jackson at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
A photo was released by the Ohio congressman’s office that shows the two chatting in front of a get-well poster.
Jackson has been on medical leave since June. The reasons behind his absence were not disclosed until recently: a combination of depression and a gastrointestinal ailment.
